Indian cinema’s reigning queen Deepika Padukone is set to have her wax statue at Madame Tussauds museums in London and New Delhi. Known for such blockbuster movies as Love Aaj Kal (2008), Cocktail (2011), Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela (2013), Bajirao Mastani (2015) and Padmaavat (2018), the gorgeous actress revealed the news on Facebook.
Padukone said, “I am delighted and honoured to be joining the incredible list of achievers at Madame Tussauds London. Working through the ideas has been so much fun and I can’t wait to see the finished experience next year.”
“The only time I visited Madame Tussauds was in London when I was very little with my parents. That memory has sort of stayed with me, obviously. And then to receive a letter and now to be a part of that, and to actually experience what goes into making these wax figures. I think Madame Tussauds is so iconic in so many ways so it’s really special,” she added.
Edward Fuller, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said, “Deepika has had huge success not only in the world of Bollywood but across the globe, even featuring in this year’s TIME 100. We’ve received regular requests to create her figure as her fan base continues to grow across the world and we’re looking forward to welcoming them to Madame Tussauds London next year for a chance to party with their idol.”
Superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif also have their wax statues at Madame Tussauds London.
